“Lemon” – Addressing the Crisis in Creativity

Will will be sharing the analysis which in the publication Lemon forms the centrepiece of the IPA (Institute of Practitioners in Advertising) Effectiveness work 2019. He assesses how certain changes in creative style align with falling advertising effectiveness. Referencing the brain and how it attends to the world, he’ll reveal how an attentional shift in the 21st Century – in business and society – has led to flatter, more abstract and devitalised work; an advertising style diametrically opposed to effectiveness… Describing how the brain attends to art, sculpture and music, he will offer guidance on the type of advertising that moves and entertains audiences, and so achieves profitable growth.
